~Self Portrait '13 by John David Smith
Posted on 01/11/2013
My contribution to the #SelfPortraitDay event held on Facebook. The visuals encompass some of the places I see on a daily basis, important and significant events in my life, real-time computer visualisations of the sounds I've made and, of course, yours truly.
"For 8 years now, artists form all over the planet take time to do a self portrait on Nov 1st and to post it online in an event of strange beauty and amazing impact. The self exploration is linked with a connectivity among artists from all over the world."
Opium Lord - Heroin Swirls (Live at the Fat Cat Bar, Stoke)
Posted on 04/03/2013
On Friday the 1st of March I went along to an Opium Lord show that they were doing not far from me at the Fat Cat Bar in Stoke. The Guitarists, Adam Beckley and Luke Fewtrell-Bowers are old school friends of mine. I saw Nath and Beckley when they came to Stoke in 2011 for a great History of the Hawk show. It was cool to see everybody there!
This film is a single-camera 720p impromtu recording of their song 'Heroin Swirls'. Best wishes to all the O.L. lads and hope you enjoy the video!
N.B. The sound does clip a fair bit and the volume is pretty high!
